Atlas Partners, LLC is an 19 year-old real estate consulting and investment company. In the past, we have specialized in the monetization of real estate assets, but currently are focused on other activities which include acquisitions for our principals of both real estate and distressed debt. Our principals, with in excess of 70 years of commercial real estate experience, add value by fast understanding of the real value and exit strategies appropriate for the specific real estate assets under consideration.
Atlas will undertake selected third-party advisory and consulting assignments. In these cases, the challenges take many forms but typically require a property or portfolio evaluation to determine not only market value, but also value within the client’s overall operating structure. Assignments usually involve making specific recommendations regarding real estate holdings and, in most cases, executing a plan of action that maximizes the return to the client and/or user. We have reviewed in excess of 135 appraisals for our lender clients.
Our main focus is the acquisition of stressed and distressed Commercial and Industrial loans from banks and non-bank lenders. We prefer particularly “messy” cases and frequently deal with unpaid wages to both union and non-union employees. Our principals’ commercial finance experience permits us to unravel situations that are especially complex. Our preference is to purchase loans with a real value of $1 million to $7 million. Because we are deploying principal funds, we have a very flat and short decision process and have closed multiple purchases in as little as ten days.
We also have an affiliate which makes investments in early stage and start-up businesses. Our primary investment thesis is: Good People with Good Ideas.
